Born To Battle (1935) - Tom Tyler
"Cyclone" Tom Saunders (Tom Tyler) is hired by a ranchers' association manager to investigate recent cattle rustling at one of their ranches and to see if a pair of nesters have anything to do with it. After discovering the nesters, Betty Powell (Jean Carmen) and her old father (Earl Dwire), are incapable of rustling, Tom turns his attention to the huge, swaggering bully of a foreman, Nate Lenox (Richard Alexander).

Tom Tyler Rides Again
This supposed to be a Reliable Picture, but even though it was written by Oliver Drake, who made a fortune writing, producing and even directing this sort of western, this little gem is just about as grade Z as it gets. B.B. Ray produced this picture anf it looks like it was shot in a day or two with a lot of footage of riding back and forth, mostly in long shots. A lot of cowboy actors are wasted in this mess and act as of they are just walking through their parts to get day money. Tom Tyler tries to breath a little life into his stalworth personna but he's just not up to it here.
I watched the cinepak version. Film not bad but sound as I watched it was badly out of sync. Don't avoid this at all costs, but just beware.
